I looked around before asking Reg and found that most others had a load of leads, battery box, lead this box that.

This unit has everything encased in one unit with a lead to a small camera, thats it.

You don't want to be getting tangled up in a load of leads and wires.

i bought one of these and sold it on ebay the next day. its no good for treework, field of view isnt anywhere near good enough. if you're looking for something for extreme sports or something else it'd be ok, quality is surprisingly good.
